My wood salt and pepper shakers from my previous post needed some friends. I paid $2 for this little spice rack.
50 cents for this DANSK Spider candle holder and a set of brand new green candles.
I grabbed these off the table faster than you can say *WOOHOOO*
As far as I am concerned you can never have enough glass Pyrex measuring cups.
I paid $1 this one. If you look at the price they want for these in stores now... you would buy all the ones you came across too. *lol*
Milk glass table lighter $1 " I missed it the first glance over the table. I am SO GLAD I took a second go over. The lady who was having the yard sale was a very nice older lady.
"She even had some faux fur coats for sale. Although they were quite small... but still that just adds to her coolness factor."
After yard saling I always stop off at Salvation Army. That is where I bought these judgmental monkeys. $1 for the pair.
Vintage bath towel 99 cents Salvation army
$2 for the 4 bracelets and the COCONUT necklace
These fantastic vintage earrings were also purchased from the nice old lady for 75 cents. I asked Claude to show them to you guys. Too bad he is more worried about his claws rather than the earrings.
Sterling Silver "Wood carved look" BEAVER!!! $2
Apparently the ladies at one thrift shop in town did NOT put on there reading glasses to see the .925 Sterling imprint on the tail.
("Lets inner NERD out") TURTLE POWER!! So if you must know I have a place in my heart for the TMNT. When I saw these two cups from 1989 for 10 cents I willingly handed my dime over.
Raphael is my favorite!!!
A book from 1966 about a man named Mr. Bumba who helps a Donkey
"I woun't give the story away just in case... "
Wooden top pull thing.... We have yet to try this amazing creation that was purchased for 10 cents
OKAY THIS ITEM BELOW ALMOST BLEW MY PANTS OFF!
The date was Sunday April 29th I had just finished up at dollar tag sale day at one of the thrifts I go to. When we got in the vehicle Mr. was heading in the direction of home. When I said "Can we go check out (Other thrift store we usually only go to on Sundays)
Mr. gets in the other lane to head to the said store.
I look through the ladies clothes and don't see much to jump around over. I am walking PAST the baby section when I see something bright and vintage on the very FRONT of the rack... as I get closer I make out a shape that I am very fond of. My heart starts racing a little faster... I run the last 3 steps and grab!!!
This MOST CUTEST BABY Bathing suit!!! OH MY HECK!! A 60s baby lobster BIKINI!!!!
Even if I tried to tell you how excited I was when I pulled this off the rack... you still would not understand. I swear on the ride home I said how much I loved this at least 5 times. Thank God I married a patient man. *lmao*
But seriously people... WHAT are the chances that this cute little swimsuit would end up in my claws?? I mean hands..... REALLY HOW MANY vintage lobster swimsuits could there really be out there? And somehow... one just ended up in my town... on the front of the rack for me to spot?
I would not have seen it if it was in the middle as I had no plans to look through the munchkin clothes.
THANK YOU vintage Fairies.
The store was having a buy one get one free on clothes. So of course I am all about deals... I needed to find something else to purchase with the lobster bikini. I found this crazy cute little ruffly dress.
It's made of some sort of delicate material and the inside is like a little slip.
For those of you new to my blog. No I don't have any kids, and I am not pregnant. *LOL*
But I do buy things for my "Future baby coconuts" which I plan on creating ... well... in the future.
P.S. Curtise I will take a vid riding my bike sometime soon.
Lastly I had to laugh because it was laundry day for my ("Adult floral pattern quilt")
I am a sucker for cute things and try not to OVER-LOAD the Mr. with my cute obsession.
But I needed a quilt so I went to grab my Queen size Tinkerbell quilt. Putting my Tink quilt on the bed with my small throw pillow collection made our bedroom look like it belonged to a little girl. *hahaha*
To me is screams HAPPINESS...
But I can't imagine how "manly" a guy could feel crawling out of a bed that looks like this to go to work.
